Mile High Station
Beautiful venue with a lot of character.
We had our ceremony and reception here. The place is definitely large enough to accomodate a large number of people; we had a group of 100, and it felt perfect. We had set up a curtain to divide the ceremony space from the reception space, and it felt very intimate. The building has a great style on its own- it seems like you could make it more or less formal depending on your wedding vision- we had a "fun" theme and it went over beautifully. I also liked their patio area by the bar where guests could hang outside if they wanted some fresh air. We got a lot of great feedback about Mile High Station from our guests.
We worked with Dana over at MHS and everything went very smoothly. She was always easy to reach if we had a question, and very professional. They had worked with our other vendors (caterer, DJ, florist, cupcakes, etc) previously, so it was nice to know that there would be no logistical issues to worry about. Our out-of-town guests stayed downtown and Dana arranged for a few taxis at the end of the night.
Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you for being wonderful hosts!
Overall, I really enjoyed working with Mile High Station. The venue is gorgeous and right up my ally look-wise. We got married in January so the indoor atmosphere was perfect for us and really helped make it feel like you were in two locations. My only qualm is that the individual who helped coordinate everything was not present the day of the wedding, her co-worker was. This just led to some miscommunications (since we didn't know she wouldn't have been there) on their part. Nothing drastic, but when you are planning the wedding you notice everything. Loved this place though and would definitely recommend.

Thank you for the review, Mary Therese. It was a pleasure to work with you. It is our goal to make sure every event goes as smoothly as possible. I know there was some confusion with the caterer, and rentals regarding a few things that were changed after the walk-thru that did not get communicated to the caterer and myself. I worked hard to make sure the day before the wedding we were all on the same page. While, I would love to work all the events, it is just not possible to be there for every one of them. That is why we do walk-thrus and constant communication prior to your event to make sure everyone is on the same page. I am sorry if there was some miscommunication about me working the night of your event, I thought I relayed that at the walk-thru. All the managing staff at Mile High Station has been here for more than 4 years and we have over 180 events a year and make sure each one is given the attention to detail that they all deserve. Congrats on your wedding and hope you both have a life time of happiness!
This is an amazing space.
Because of the nature of the building, this is a great place to rent out if you are not able to spend a lot of money on decoration. The building and venue speaks for its self! Its has very clean lines and an edgy, modern feel if you are going for that look.
They were very flexible with most things but in my particular case not with others. We were not able to bring in our own liquor as per their policies which was a bit hard since we are a family that owns a liquor store but we loved the place so much, it was a sacrifice we were willing to make. And they do have a list of vendors that they prefer as well, so you can not always bring who you want to use.
I highly recommend that this venue be checked out. Do not be discouraged by the outside, which can be too urban for some. They provide great service and you get your bang for your buck!
The venue is amazing, beautiful, and breath taking. We had some trouble with getting our point of contact on the phone, but other then that, perfection. Easy on site set up, rehearsal, reception. We did the ceremony and reception on site, and the pictures turned out great. We were able to use their sound system with a laptop to make music super easy. We got dressed on site, and had a blast! If you want something with history, and charm, this is it.
the event manager never met with us had an assistant do it she was great up until a week before wedding, the bartenders were very rude to all my guest and their cups were filthy when they poured our champagne for toast. We had a 2,000 dollar deposit for the bar and we still ended up paying 250.00 because the manager could not deduct that from our 2,000 amount. weird not to mention rude when they asked for the money. no one did what they said they would very upset about it:(
My now husband and I fell in love with this venue the moment we saw it. We love historic and unique places and this fit the bill. The venue itself provides a great atmosphere with the exposed brick, old lighting fixtures and 'crane'. We were able to decorate the way we wanted with stringing lanterns and candles everywhere. Stephanie and her crew were also very accommodating with bringing in specific bottles of wine for our wine savvy family members as well as specialty vodkas for my taste. I was very pleased that we did not have to rent chairs or tables, as they came with the venue. Overall a great venue and good experience! I highly recommend this venue for a reception if it is within your budget!
NOT SURE WHY THE POST DATES SAYS 2009 BUT THE WEDDING WAS JUST IN MARCH 2011 AND I AM POSTING THIS IN APRIL 2011!! - I just photographed a wedding at the Mile High Station and have to say it is now one of my top 10 fave spots to photograph a wedding!! The exposed brick, high ceilings and amazing industrial light chandeliers make the whole ambiance of the place amazing!!
Definitely worth considering for your wedding if you like the 'industrial' feel. You can see some good photos of the venue here: www.freshinlove.com
Mile High Station has a great staff that is more than willing to be helpful and to negotiate to help you get exactly what you want in your wedding day. We only spent $1000 on the site fee because we are having our wedding on Tuesday evening. The other $2000 goes towards the bar tab because Mile High Station does all of their own drinks.
The venue is so amazing!! it does not require any or a lot of decorations as it is sooo pretty!! Stephanie was quick to respond and was always available. It is not the cheapest but it is worth it!
It is big and yet you have a intimate setting.
They were not very flexiable when it came to bringing in your own catering and one day they would say something was okay but then they would tell you something different the next. GET EVERYTHING in writting!!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about Mile High Station. It was a pleasure to work with you. I hope all is well.
I fell in love with this venue the second I walked in and am so glad we had our reception there. But the staff is a little hard to work with. The were really bad about returning phone calls and e-mails which added unnecessary stress. When I arrived at the wedding they were charging our guests for drinks after several conversations stating it was to be an open bar. They fixed immediately though, so it definitely was not a huge problem. The bartenders were a lot of fun though and I definitely LOVE the space.
Mile High Station was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. It is very modern and edgy. The Staff was very personable and very helpful through the whole process. We were able to bring in our own caterer. We also recieved a great discounted price for scheduling it on a weekday. mile High Station is a beatuiful venue and the staff will not let you down.

Mile High was such a fabulous place to have our reception at, we even held our anniversary party there as well. This venue is simply amazing, breathtaking, and all the above. They work so hard to make each event spectacular. They go above and beyond to help. It was spacious and full of energy. We would not have change a thing about our reception nor anniversary parties. We can’t wait to go back whether it’s our celebration or a friend/family member. We highly recommend this venue for any occasion, as we were very impressed.
